Equity arcata working groups
Our working groups are dedicated to improving racial equity through events and learning sessions. Currently, equity arcata consists of six working groups, with each uniquely contributing to racial equity work.
We work to create racially
equitable marketing and communications practices with cultural humility top of mind. We believe in the importance of looking at traditional marketing & communications methods with a racial equity lens in order to create inclusive messaging for all.
Led by: Lynette Nutter
We work to offer learning opportunities about dismantling institutional and systemic racism and white supremacy culture in collaboration with other racial equity efforts in the community for equity arcata members, cal poly students and staff, and community members.

Home Away From Home
In the spirit of camaraderie and good will, Home Away From Home volunteers host community-building potlucks to create a cultural bridge between local college students and non-student members of the community, in addition to supporting local initiatives surrounding food insecurity. Due to COVID-19, home away from home has been hosting supply giveaways in lieu of potlucks.

Police and Student Safety
We work to foster an environment where the relationship between community members and law enforcement, as well as fair practices of law enforcement, support BIPOC community members to feel safe, protected, represented and engaged.
